- Pressure washers?
So finally growing up and buying a house with a garden, driveway patios etc to look after. So looking to buy a pressure washer as the garage, driveways and patios all need a good clean.
Obvious choice is karcher, the K4 seems like a sensible option as water cooled motor so better for longer periods of use. However as usual I find myself thinking isn’t the k5 better as it’s more powerful? Obviously not important for washing cars but might make the patios less of a chore.
Karcher have an outlet with refurb ones that are cheap but only 6 month warranty so not sure if it’s a false economy Vs 3/4/5 years on a new model for ~£100 more?
Any advice? Do I just buy the karcher? Are other brands better? Is the warranty worth it?
Budget is up to around £200ish
Then I need to start thinking about lawn mowers, tool chests and a compressor for the garage and then probably flowers for the Mrs when I spent all my time in the garagePosted 7 months agosimon_gSubscriber
I like my k4 from the outlet – you sometimes see really good offers from the DIY sheds on them but if you need it soon then outlet is fine.
Definitely worth it over the air-cooled ones, I killed a k2 using it all afternoon non-stop.
Patio cleaning attachment is worth having too.Posted 7 months agoRockhopperMember
I had one of the cheaper Karchers which broke and I replaced with with a Bosch from B&Q which is a better machine in my opinion (longer hose, doesn’t seize up if the water supply gets interrupted, more useful tools supplied etc etc). Helpfully I can’t remember the model numbers of either of them but they were each around £100Posted 7 months agopetecMember
Karcher outlet often does good deals https://www.karcheroutlet.co.uk/
Ours from there has lasted years, but to be fair we only use it once every couple of months
this one does look good though https://www.clasohlson.com/uk/Worx-WG629E.9-Pressure-Washer/41-1290Posted 7 months ago
